Her work was produced by Joyce Soho and was presented at DTW and Dixon Place among many other venues in New York City. She later graduated with a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Columbia University. Trained as a modern dancer, she now works to combine her professional experience in the performing arts with research in the field of Anthropology. Her research interests encompass “the body”, “birthing”, and “the influence of cultural change and its effects on the body and mind” on which she wrote a thesis based on research conducted in Germany.
